I was sad to hear that Nora Ephron had passed away this week. I love her books and films and she made my life a little brighter by them. I often make the dull task of ironing better by watching "You've got Mail", "Julie & Julia" or my absolute favourite "Heartburn". The scene in which Meryl Streep is at the hairdressers, 7 months pregnant and her hair half done when she realises that her husband is cheating on her and she dashes home to find the "proof", ties my stomach in a knot every time (and I have to put down the ironing at this point too!). Heartburn was of course autobiographical and I love the way she used the book and the film to get some sort of revenge on her rat bag of a husband (played brilliantly by Jack Nicholson).
